Arup recognised that the shortcomings of their HR technology footprint posed a significant operational and commercial risk. Calling on Konvergent’s experience of HR digital transformation, they wanted us to help board members and HR leaders understand the scope of their technology needs, capability gaps and need for technology market insight.
This led to the company’s first global investment in HR technology, a digital HR strategy and alignment with their global Cloud strategy. Our accelerated approach supported Arup through RFI/RFP, business case development and global HR systems implementation across five regions and 38 countries.
This would not have been possible without our team’s focus on simple messaging, engaging visuals and outstanding collaboration.

At the time, the focus was too much on the day-to-day. They needed an architecture consultancy to help business and IT see the problems at a more holistic level. That’s why they contacted Konvergent.
Due to the foresight of the Head of Supply Chain, BT Supplier Management were early adopters and advocates of business capability. They used it to determine the best approach within the supply chain programme – solving technology issues and focusing on the market-leading aspects of their organisation to win a competitive advantage.
Business capability was also used to drive a £20m RFI/RFP process for a new IT solution. They attributed a 5% cost saving in development cost to the use of this approach, which represents around 1000% ROI on the incremental cost involved (based on a PACE layering approach).
"This is the first time I've ever walked out of a meeting with IT feeling like we were talking the same language."
